    Recently I received 4 boxcars in the mail from a modeler in Austin, Texas. They came equipped with horn hook couplers and had not a lick of weathering. Now, anybody who knows me knows that I couldn't leave them in that state. I'm posting two photos of each model. The first is before weathering , the second is after.

    That last one has that fade-oxidized paint look - I really like it!
    I think the trucks could use a little more weathering - but otherwise great job!
